A 7-foot-7 actor who played brief but memorable roles in Doctor Who and Game of Thrones died Saturday after reportedly suffering heart failure.

Neil Fingleton, who grew up in the small British city of Durham, was 36.

Fingleton played Mag the Mighty during the fourth season of Game of Thrones, a giant brought down during the assault on The Wall in “The Watchers on the Wall.” He also played the Fisher King alongside Peter Capaldi in the 2015 episode “Before the Flood.”

The basketball player-turned-actor had smaller roles in other films, including X-Men: First Class47 Ronin and Jupiter Ascending.

Fingleton was Britain’s tallest man, according to The Mirror, a title he earned by growing less than an inch taller than the previous record holder, Christopher Greener.
